Rita Wilson Drops Beatles Poster Lawsuit Against Melissa Pearl

    NEW YORK, June 22 /CNW/ -- Contention over a rare vintage 1962 Beatles
poster has been amicably resolved.  Melissa Pearl has sold the poster to Rita
Wilson, who sought the piece for her husband Tom Hanks. The poster had been
the subject of a lawsuit filed by Wilson against Pearl, but Wilson's complaint
and all allegations against Pearl have been completely withdrawn.

    The action stemmed from certain misunderstandings regarding the
conditions of sale of the poster. Although Pearl provided a copy of the
Sotheby's London record of sale for the poster and other authentication at the
time of the initial deal, the misunderstandings have been resolved based on
additional authentication documents for the poster.

    Both Wilson and Hanks have been very happy with the artwork Pearl has
found for them over the years.
